Scientists Develop Groundbreaking New Antibiotic

Scientists from the University of Illinois Chicago and Harvard University have developed a new antibiotic, cresomycin, as a potential tool against drug-resistant bacteria. This achievement stems from research into how antibiotics interact with the bacterial ribosome and strategies to overcome bacterial defenses, like ribosome modification. Cresomycin’s effectiveness against multidrug-resistant strains in animal studies signals its promise for human applications, highlighting the crucial role of structural biology in…

‘No one had done it before him’: the groundbreaking stories of Black astronauts | Documentary films

In space, Victor Glover orbited the Earth every 90 minutes, witnessing 16 sunrises and sunsets in a single day. In America, Victor Glover got behind the wheel of his car and knew that, as a Black man, he might be pulled over by police.“You still have to drive home from work and be worried about a busted tail light stop,” he recalls of his early years training to be astronaut. “I am the son of a police officer so I knew all those tactics. I’ve been pulled over. I had police officers harass and I would give them my ID and…

Groundbreaking New Research Reveals That Early Human Diets Were Primarily Plant-Based

Recent research challenges the traditional view of early human diets in the Andes, suggesting a shift from “hunter-gatherers” to “gatherer-hunters.” The study, analyzing remains from the Wilamaya Patjxa and Soro Mik’aya Patjxa sites in Peru, reveals an 80 percent plant-based and 20 percent meat diet among early Andeans. This finding, based on isotope chemistry and statistical modeling, contradicts previous beliefs and influences current perceptions of diets such as the Paleodiet. It also indicates a need to reassess…

Apple introduces groundbreaking AI image editing model: MGIE

Apple researchers have introduced a groundbreaking AI model, MLLM-Guided Image Editing (MGIE), capable of editing images based on text prompts. Developed in collaboration with researchers from the University of California, Santa Barbara, this model represents a significant advancement in image editing technology. Unlike existing models, MGIE reportedly handles a wide range of editing scenarios, from simple color adjustments to complex object manipulations. The core of the MGIE is a Multimodal Large Language Model (MLLM),…

Groundbreaking New Response to Cardiac Arrest Expected to Save Lives : ScienceAlert

As of January this year, Aotearoa New Zealand became just the second country (after Canada) to adopt a groundbreaking new procedure for patients experiencing cardiac arrest.Known as "double sequential external defibrillation" (DSED), it will change initial emergency response strategies and potentially improve survival rates for some patients.Surviving cardiac arrest hinges crucially on effective resuscitation. When the heart is working normally, electrical pulses travel through its muscular walls creating regular,…
